The Porta Brace ATV-888 Audio Tactical Vest provides ENG and fast-paced reality & documentary mixers with an innovative solution for moving rapidly and freely in the field when carrying an audio bag with a Sound Devices 888 recorder housed in it.
The ATV-888 combines an audio harness and an audio bag into one cohesive military-style tactical vest. The formfitting design grips your body to provide support, weight distribution, and comfort. It also stabilizes your equipment close to your body, even when you are on the move.
Made of durable, 1000-denier Cordura Nylon, the bag is large enough to create a lightweight and compact audio rig. In addition to the recorder, it accommodates two wireless systems and an NP1 battery. There is also a removable storage pouch for your accessories, which can attach to either the front or back. The vest's modular design lets you add additional storage if needed.
One of the most distinctive features of the ATV is a boompole clip on the front of the harness. The clip lets you fasten your boompole to the vest, freeing your hands between takes. It also releases quickly so you can resume recording without missing an important piece of dialog.
Additional features include a modular iPad sleeve that allows you to safely carry your iPad on your chest, where it can be easily read. There is also a separate modular phone/pen holder, which is interchangeable with the iPad sleeve.
The ATV-888 comes with a double vinyl rain cover that opens and acts as a pouch.
